[Intro Chords]
G  G  G  G 
Am G  D  D


G
I always knew that you would take yourself far from home

   Am          G                D
As soon as, as far as you could go

          G
By the quarter inch cut of your hair and the army issued 

              Am                   G                 D
green For the past six weeks I can tell Where you've been


	[Chorus #1]
  		G             D          C
	For I knew, I could see it was all cut and dried 

	   G            Am                   G                     
	to me There was soldier's blue blood streaming inside 
	 
            D               G                     D
	your veins There is a world outside of this room 

                   C               G       Am        G
	And when you meet it promise me that you won't meet 

	             D
	It with your gun


     G                                      Am
now, you are one, one of the brave few It's awful sad we

G              D     G  
need Boys like you I hope the day never comes for here’s

                               Am      G                   
your live round, son Stock and barrel, safety trigger 


            D
Here's your gun



	[Chorus #2]
	      G             D          C
	For I knew, I could see it was all cut and dried 

	   G            Am                   G                     
	to me There was soldier's blue blood streaming inside 
	 
            D               G                     D
	your veins There is a world outside of this room 

                   C               G  Am        G
	And when you meet it promise me you won't meet 

	             D                         G       C         
	It with your gun taking aim no I don’t mean to argue

                   G                    C                      
	That they've made a decent boy of you I don't 

        G                   D               C             
	mean to spoil your home coming, but Baby brother you 

	                G
	would expect me to.



[4 bars of G]

          Am             G                   D
Stock and barrel, safety trigger here’s your gun 


       G                                                  
So now does your heart pitter-pat with that patriotic sound 

         Am                 G         D           
When you see the stripes of Old Glory waving




	[Chorus #3]
      G            D          C                    G
For I knew I could see It was all cut and dried to me 

          Am                   G
There was soldier's blue blood Streaming inside your 

D               G                     D
veins There's a world outside of this room And when 

C                   G  Am        G  
you meet it promise me you won't meet it With 

     D                           G        C
your gun, taking aim For I don't mean, to argue That 

        G                    C     G     
they've made a decent boy of you I don't mean to spoil 

     D              C            D
your home coming My baby brother Jude

           G       C           G           C
No I don't mean to hurt you By saying this again 

           G              D                    C            
They're so good at making soldiers But they're not

                  G
as good at making Men
